Happiness, by Amanda Hartmann

Hi again Colour Blast Fans,

I hope you are having a fun and colourful September!!!

Here is my page to share today.... and it's bright!!!


Here is how I put it together.....

I got out a rainbow of Colour Pastes: in Fire Engine, Sunshine, Rose Petal, Apple of my Eye, Lovely Lilac, Tangareen Dream and Just Blue. I used a small amount of each colour and swiped each through this Mandala stencil (inspired by the Lisa Oxley technique!).

The final effect was colourful!

Next, I sprayed some water onto the background, and using a watercolour paint brush, I added small amounts of Colour Shimmer Dust to the background. I used the colours: Duke and Lollipop.

I also used the Colour Shimmer Dust (in Duke) to colour this white flower. (Yay, for perfect colour matches!)

Then, using my trusty Colour Sprays I added a few splatters of extra colour. I mostly used the colour Bubblegum, but also a few splats of Roadbase.
While I had my Colour Spray out (in Bubblegum), I swiped some colour around the outer edge of the layout.

And finished it off with some black pen doodling.

Next, I heat embossed my title letters with Colour Embossing Powder. I used Rose Petal. Dipping the letter back into the embossing powder while still hot, to add an extra layer of colour, is always a good plan!

I forgot to take a photo of it as I did it (oops, sorry!), but once the page was together, I decided it needed some yellow colour, so I added extra sprays of Colour Shimmer Spray in Sunshine, which you can see in the final page photos.

Here is the final page and some close ups:

I love creating interesting clusters to finish my layouts!

Love the rich pink tones of the Colour embossed "Happiness" title.

Thanks so much for looking today!
